The DNA gap is also very close with other animals as well, and it's not just DNA that is the argument it's a slew of other factors.
Er, yes. That was indeed my point. DNA comparisons are not particularly helpful when we have >90% identical DNA with mice and >40% with fruit flies....
Being considered a "human" doesn't automatically make eating non "humans" moral or right.

^ got to it first. You're the one going around saying it's wrong because we're "similar" to animals. That doesn't really make sense. We're similar to all kinds of things, depending where you draw the lines. We're similar to carrots in a lot of ways, so it's immoral to eat vegetables?
Are the carnivorous animals unethical?
A man builds. A parasite asks 'Where is my share?'
A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '
how is that twisted? hunting animals and killing them for meat for survival purposes like starvation is much different.
ok...some people hold strong to their values. Others have "situations" where its ok. Sounds like a ethical sliding scale and that is where your "ethics" twists upside down where as other peoples ethics twist at other areas along the scale. Basically goes from "unethical" to "ethical".
Take what I say with a grain of salt, because that's all it is compared to the ocean of complexity when it comes to actions and real life.
